All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
II Timothy 3:16-17
As Christians, we believe that the Bible is not just a collection of human writings, but it is the very Word of God, given to us to guide and instruct us in all areas of life.
The phrase “breathed out by God” in this verse means that the Bible is God’s own words, spoken through human authors. The Bible is not just a human book, but it is a divine book written for our benefit.
The Scriptures are profitable for teaching us what is right, rebuking us when we go astray, correcting us when we make mistakes, and training us in righteousness so that we can live a life that pleases God.
As we read the Bible, we should read it with an open heart and mind, asking God to speak to us through its pages. We should seek to apply its teachings to our lives, allowing it to shape our thoughts, attitudes, and actions.
In a world that is constantly changing and filled with conflicting messages, we can trust in the unchanging and timeless truths of the Bible. It is our source of wisdom, guidance, and comfort.
